All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.
Sarah is a very sweet and gentle girl. She is obedient and friendly although she does get very excited when she first meets someone. She runs around in circles and wiggles a lot for a minute or so. And she smiles constantly when she is getting any attention (note her pictures...we couldn't get one without a smile!). Sometimes she yodels with happiness too! When she first came, she would duck her head and cringe when you tried to pet her, Now, she hesitates but once you've petted her, you've won her heart. She gets so happy that she becomes silly and puppy like for awhile until she settles down. It won't be long until her confidence builds even more. She would be great for a family even with smaller children because she is very careful and never jumps up. She usually doesn't even pull when leashed unless she meets someone new and wants to go greet them. Even a small child could walk her with supervision. She is going to bond deeply with her new family and be a devoted and loving member.

The DHS organized in November 2008 to care for the unwanted and neglected animals of Northeastern Louisiana. We are funded only by donations. We ARE making a difference but we still have a LOT to do....
